Working on a friends Buccaneer and saw that a switch contact is missing from one of the relays associated with the spin & spot feature. In looking at the PBR website, it seems like their contacts are for high voltage switches (pop bumpers, etc.).

Looking for options - would Radio Shack have them? Unfortunately I don't have any donor games/switches to take a contact from. Any thoughts?

PBR would have any switch part you need. Just call them.

jeffc - thanks - that's the contact I already saw online that said it's for high voltage applications.

I'll give them a call.

You are confusing high voltage with high current.

For pinball applications the regular contacts they carry are applicable (10 volts or less) where there will not be high current.

For applications at 25V or higher for coils and flippers and driving other moving parts the tungsten contacts are indicated.

You only need one of the two style.

Quoted from MikeO:

Yes and PBR carries both and it is always a good idea to have some spares on hand for repairs along with some switch leafs so you don't have to wait a week to play a game that broke just because of a switch breaking or a contact fell out.

If you had a pic I could probably send you a whole relay for $5. But then you'd have to switch out a leaf in the stack, can be a little tricky.
